Public Property Data As DataPackage

Property value

Type: DataPackage

Contains the content a user wants to share.


The Data property enables your app to supply data to a target app. Your app must supply this data by using a DataPackage object.

Use this property when your app has the content immediately available that the user wants to share. If you need to call a function to generate the DataPackage, use the GetDeferral method.

When your app cannot supply a DataPackage object, use the FailWithDisplayText method to cancel the share and provide a message that the target app can display to the user.


The following code shows how to get a DataPackage object from the Data property as part of setting the data on a DataPackage to share with another app.
